Trinity offers a wonderful Preschool program for children who are 3 – 4 years of age. The program is playful, yet educational, and provides a wonderful Christian education in a loving environment. The Preschool teachers utilize “Zoo Phonics” for teaching literacy, reading, and writing skills. We also utilize the PCI and Essentials curriculum.
Weekly themes, along with the children’s interests and needs, are the basis for our activities and learning experiences. Our Preschool teachers instill an understanding of respectable Christian values throughout the curriculum. Preschool is offered on a full or part-time basis.
Trinity Lutheran Early Childhood program has developed learner goals and outcomes that are based on the Nebraska Early Learning Guidelines. These guidelines provide a reliable tool to gauge learning and development in all of the core areas. Our teachers will regularly observe the children and share observations of the children’s activities and progress with families. Our teachers will also assess your child’s development and learning using the GOLD assessment tool.
